Hi everyone!  It's Monday again which means there is a new sketch challenge over at Get Your Sketch On! (GYSO).  This week's sponsor is The Cutting Cafe.  To the left you will see a sketch created by the fabulous Bree.  
 
This layout is of my baby girl when she was 3.  She decided to throw me a smooch as I was snapping her photo.

 I happened to buy these pink, puffy alphabet letters on clearance.  Don't you love a great buy?  I didn't think I would actually use them, but who could refuse a sticker pack for $0.99?  They ended up matching perfectly with my layout so I am very happy :o)  The black title letters are foam stickers made by EK Success.
 This FAAAAA-BULOUS vine is made by my dear friend Kay.  She is super talented at making vines and other embellies.  Here she combined beaded flowers (that she also made herself), mulberry flowers and a glossy butterfly.  You can find this vine and other goodies in her etsy, Kay's Kreative Korner.
 These butterflies are also from Kay's Kreative Korner.  In this etsy you will find so many different varieties of butterflies.  Each butterfly has a glossy texture, wire antennas, and glittered body and wings.
 The little 'I love you' quote is from The Cutting Cafe.  I highlighted the letters with Stickles to add a little bling.  I also added feathers behind the quote to match the feathers on the hood of my daughter's jacket.
 I partially punched the border of my layout using Martha Stewart's Wild Flowers punch.  I added a little bling to each flower center.  The lacing you see here is what many people call my 'trademark' LOL.  My dear friend Kelly says that I must have learned to tie my shoes at an early age because I am obsessed with lacing.  But actually... I think I was deprived of laces as a child because I always had those shoes with the velcro tabs LOL.  If you're interested, you can find my lacing tutorial here.  Just keep in mind when reading the tutorial that I did not add the 'twist' to the lacing on this layout. 
I almost always use the Fiskars Threading Water punch to create a border with holes for me to lace through.  It just makes my life easier by saving me the time of measuring and punching each individual hole.  The stitched border was punched using my new favorite punch by Martha Stewart and then hand-stitched with embroidery floss. 
This chippie is made by The Dusty Attic, however it is only a section of the actual chipboard design.  I had used the Decorative Gate #1 (DA0289) in a previous layout, and I had cut out the inner portion of the gate.  I saved it, of course. (Who could throw out a piece of Dusty Attic?)  The inner portion of the gate matched perfectly with this layout!  I painted it with white acrylic paint and topped it off with some Stickles.
